Beauty Trend Spotting: Ladies Love The Little Longer ‘Lob’

We remember being caught in that awkward stage of growing out a short hair cut, but we don’t remember our locks looking this good during that time.

Now we wish we’d given the lengthened ‘lob’ a go.

Still in the bob family—thanks to the shape of the cut—just a few inches longer, the little longer ‘lob’ is a versatile way of growing your strands gorgeously and gracefully.

Instead of pulling it into a ponytail (like we did on a daily basis), find inspiration in the manes of a few of our favorite celebrities.

Try it blown straight like Emma Stone, choppy and layered like Nicole Richie, full of piece-y texture like Olivia Wilde, big and curly like Julianne Hough, tousled and wavy like Lucy Hale, or sleek and retro like Jessica Chastain.

Just remember to visit your stylist every six weeks to trim your ends and keep the shape of your style sharp! —India-Jewel Jackson
